I bought this color a long time ago, but I never used it as I thought it would be too dark. I gave myself a manicure the other night, and I really love this color. It is vampy in dark lights, but in sunlight its a beautiful metallic garnet color, and it is quite breathtaking on my skin tone. I have very pale skin, dark hair and darkish eyes. My coloring allows for dramatic contrasts with nail colors, and this is a very glamourus shade. I applied two coats, but I think it could cover in one. The consistncy is rather thick and I think the color istself has a higher gloss than the top coat that I applied after two coats. I noticed this when I applied the top coat to one hand, and looked at the other hand. So far, I have had no chips, and I had a day of cleaning and laundry. Chanel polishes usually are really good about not chipping, but each color has different ingredients, so sometimes the consistency and chip resistance is varied (I have found that the more metallic colors are more likely to crease, and the more opaque bold colors are more likely to chip). I love this color and will certainly buy again, but Chanel nail polishes last forever, so I don't think I will ever have to buy it again :)

Curses! Tricked again by a Chanel varnish with "Noire" in the name. They should have called this one Tulipe Marron, or maybe Tulipe Bronze, instead.

This is a gorgeous color. I love Chanel polishes....I know....cheaper brands are just as good, but there's something about wearing Chanel...anyway.....This color reminds me of Old Hollywood....where the red was more of a carmine with a hint of burgundy. I didn't see, and don't get any shimmer, however some Chanel polishes look like they have shimmer in the bottle, but once on, it disappears unless you look oh so closely in bright sunlight, It's a very elegant color, and it's a refreshing alternative to the blackend or browned down trend, I have Chanel's Rouge Noir and EL's Black Wine..those are truly "blackend":, however this does not rely on black, but gets it's color saturation from the burgundy pigment, I can see this working on almost any skintone, but especially fair...and especially if you don't want anything too trendy and don't like black or navy, but still want old school "chic". Worth tracking down..

I was at a cousin's house when I saw her collection of Chanel nail polishes. I decided to pick one to paint my nails, and I am in LOVE with this color! For so long, I've been trying to find a beautiful shade of red that wasn't too red, had the right amount of shimmer but not look too matted or metallic-y, and was dark enough to be almost burgandy. This is such an excellent color with gold shimmer through it. I find 1 coat gives a nice color. I don't know where I'll be able to buy it except 2nd hand now as it's an older color. one lippie off though because it's not as "chip-resistant" as chanel advertises.
edit: if you don't want to spend a lot of money and you're looking for a verrrry good duplicate, buy OPI's romeo & joliet.

Just bought this one in the limited edition 3 pack at the Chanel store in Las Vegas. I LOVE THIS COLOUR!! I've had terrible nails all my life, the break, I bite them, use them as tools, so I've been trying to invest in good products to take care of them. I bought my first chanel polish ($25 in Canada) about two months ago. My nails have never looked so good and stayed long for this long before. I find all my chanel polishes (I'm not up to 5 + top coat) go on like a dream and look like I've just had a manicure. The polish goes on like glass, it's amazing. With this colour one coat will do you, I added a second about half way through the week to give them a boost. I know $25 is a lot for polish, but if it makes my hands look like this and goes on so professional, I'm sticking with chanel.

Tulipe Noire is a stunning browned-burgundy streaked with super-fine gold shimmer, it creates a glowing effect rather than looking shimmery or metalic. Tulipe Noire is the perfect way to wear vampy colours if you're intimidated by other vampy options such as black or charcoal. It is chic and glamorous, without screaming for attention.
As I have come to realise Chanel's nailpolishes are excellent quality, they apply well and dry to a glossy finish. The staying power is also great, which you would hope for as they are quite expensive when compared with other nailpolish brands. ($38AUD)
I'm very happy with this polish, and Chanel nail polishes in general. I would purchase again, although I doubt I will ever finish a bottle.

I love this colour!, I have very fair skin and some of the dark polishes around are a bit too gothy for me but this is just perfect, it looks amazing on both fingers and toes and when I wear it I always feel elegant. It paints on beautifully with two coats achieving the bottle colour with no streakiness. The gold shimmer is a lovely touch adding depth to this stunning plum/burgundy shade.

I resisted it for a while. I normally don't like buying LE products in case I love them and then won't be able to replace them. It looks stunning in the bottle and even richer on. Most of the gold shimmer visible in the bottle is unfortunately lost on the nail but it gives the colour an amazing shimmering depth. Some reviewers suggested it's a winter colour but I beg to disagree as it looks great with a light tan as well as on pale skin. The formula is thin which makes it dry quickly and very easy to apply. A single coat gives good coverage, but I prefer 2 coats for the depth. So far I've had it on for 4 days and it hasn't chipped at all. Considering I'm not wearing the top coat and have been furiously cooking, typing, openning cans, etc, I think it's an excellent going. The bottle is lush, but I have to say I'm not a big fan of those Chanel double tops. It's pricey but it's one classy product. I love it.

I received Tulipe Noir as one of my hottest Christmas gifts but at first, when I finished the unwrapping, I remember thinking to myself something like this: "No way this polish could equalize the quality of my beloved Rouge Noir, this is just an ugly dupe of it". Well, I was SO wrong. Tulipe Noir is a beautiful and pretty unique color, nothing in common with Rouge Noir. I use this polish very often and I'm pondering to buy another one soon. Too bad it's a limited editon product.

This color is so beautiful, especially when the sunlight hits it. I would call it a red-gold. It wears really well too

LOVE this color! Looks absolutely beautiful and have gotten so many compliments when using this nailpolish. Lasts longer than average too.Would definetely buy it again!

Tulipe Noire is a limited edition nail polish released with Chanel's 2007 Fall collection. In the bottle, it appears a burgundy-plum with gold shimmer. It's also true to shade on the nails with two coats. I find it absolutely gorgeous. I took off one lippie because I wish the Chanel nail polish brush was a bit bigger, especially for toes. Retails for $19 but is already out of stock at most counters and online. Photo in profile.

I was so excited to have found this on Nordstrom's website. I was late last year with Black Satin. It doesn't look like the swatches in the magazines. I don't get a plum feel from it. It's more of a bronze red. It looks great on my toes. I'm not crazy about it for my hands.

Tulipe Noir looks like root beer on my toes. Seems to be more brown/plum than red infused with gold as described. Not a favorite--will stick with Chanel Shanghi Red.

Gorgeous plummy brown color. Looks beautiful on my toes. Worth the hype.

I got hooked on Chanel polish during the Black Satin craze. I got this a few weeks ago and love it. The color is hard to describe, sort of a regal burgundy rust with gold flecks. I think it´s a great color for fall. Like all the Chanel polishes I´ve tried, it wears really well. I´m glad I got this, and would buy it again if i ever ran out.

Ok, I think this one is fab. I bought it and love it, and though I usually don't spend much on polish, I thought this one was worth the splurge. I tried it on a finger and was amazed at how beautiful it looked with my pale skin, as I usually don't wear darker colors on my tips, only my toes. For me, all nail polishes wear the same. I've tried just about every brand, and I almost always get great wear on my toes, and chips in a day or two on my tips. OPI, Essie, Lippmann, Chanel, drugstore... all the same. But the color is simply stunning, and I don't regret the purchase a bit. I probably wouldn't repurchase simply because I do not commit to nail polish!

Someone gave me a color replacement for this shade. Thanks jo anne!
It's fingerpaints polish in cranberry beauty. I've also seen a good color from rimmel called russet flame. That one might not be the same, but the same range for autumn at least. Like someone below said, there are a million good colors too similar for me to buy the Chanel. It's probably sold out anyway! lol

It's beautiful but definitely a fall/winter color. Still, buy it now; it'll probably be gone by the time it's seasonably appropriate because of the buzz. And sooo expensive.

I got sucked into buying this after seeing it in a magazine the other day. I've had in on for five days and it's barely chipped at all...which is unheard of for me. Although I did file my nails down super short so I think that helps it last longer. The color is very pretty but not as gold-y as it looks in the bottle. It's definitely more of a fall/winter color and I do feel a little out of place wearing it right now.
I'll definitely be wearing this come fall and winter but for $19 a bottle I don't know that it's any greater than a similar color from OPI (which I've decided is my favorite nail polish as far as texture, range of colors and price!)
I probably won't buy this again for several reasons:
1. Other than top coats, I've never bought the same shade of nail polish twice....I like to experiment and these days it seems like the popular colors change faster than I could ever use up a whole bottle.
2. I don't think I've ever actually used up a whole bottle of nail polish.
3. I feel guilty for spending so much money on nail polish. I actually bought two different Chanel polishes because I couldn't make up my mind (who spends $40 on nail polish when it doesn't involve a manicure...crazy!)
